of course. so trying to -- china is a much interest in canadian energy and natural resources. we are very much interested in building trust, strategic trust and cooperation with china. and from enable perspective, of course, i'll give you one sort of anecdote. you were referring to this the islands, two months ago i attended the western pacific naval symposium hosted -- and have the opportunity to sit between the deputy commander of the people's liberation army navy, and the commander of the ambassadors japanese maritime self-defense force, a euphemism for the japanese navy. it was at a time when the island was leading on cnn and bbc. i thought as i was sitting between two them there's an opportunity for a canadian to do something extraordinary from an naval diplomatic perspective and put this thing to bed. [laughter] >> how did that go? >> not too well, not too well. [laughter] which is my point. i spoke with the chinese admirals interpreter. i spoke with admiral commander in english, a great conversation. but never was the bridge build or even considered. and i think one of the key issu
and this brings back sweet memories of when china was very isolated during the cold war. in the end, there's a whole new generation of people who have been much more sophisticated understanding, but that i would say it's a very strong autonomic response to the united states beefing up its forces in australia and then they wake up one morning and burma has flipped on them. it was eternal in terms of their faithful allies. these things caused a lot of consternation. so the old fear of diagnostically speaking in china is to fear with sand and travel without. these things happening around them excite them. >> how much does it add to that anxiety is that all? >> is the most problematic relationship now in japan and this is not good. i have to say i think japan probably hasn't played this as well as it might have, but i think on the other hand it would be fair to say also that it serves china's purposes to have something happening outside his orders which can rally people at home. there's a lot of complex things going on in each of these reactions to foreign movements outside. >> which ma
will look at the new communist party of leadership in china and that impact on u.s.- china relations. hosted by the center for strategic and international studies in washington, this is an hour. i'd also like to recognize former ambassador to china jim sasser who's sitting right there, one of my close friends. thank you for coming, senator. glad to see you. well, the panel is a really good one, kurt campbell, assistant secretary of state for east asia and pacific affairs. he became -- came to that job in 2009, previously the ceo and co- founder of the center for a new american security. he was a professor at harvard, associate professor of public policy and international relations at the kennedy school. chris johnson, senior adviser and freeman chair in china studies here at csis. his most important public service, as far as i'm concerned, is he gave me a lot of help in preparing for the presidential debate. and i'll be -- always be grateful for that, chris. he's frequently advised senior white house, cabinet, congressional, military and foreign officials on chinese leadership and on beijing
. >> excellent news out of china. pmi is an index or the ask people how confident you are feeling, indicating the fourth quarter of the year, china has seen a very marked pickup in economic growth. that is extremely good news because china had been having a pretty sluggish time of things over the course of the first half of 2012. this is leading the optimism that 2013 could break away from the economic doldrums. nonetheless [indiscernible] >> there you go. thank you very much. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is receiving treatment at a hospital in new york for a blood clot. she suffered a concussion earlier this month after fainting and falling down. the blood clot was discovered during a follow-up medical examination rea. >> hillary clinton earlier this month. it is believed it was while on her trip to europe that the u.s. secretary of state contracted a stomach virus that left her severely dehydrated. on her return home, she collapsed and severed a concussion. during a follow-up examination, doctors have discovered a blood clot. mrs. clinton is being kept under observation in this b
, the rights of disabled americans including veterans who may travel the country such as china or russia or mali or any other country that may choose to adopt this treaty. if the senate desires to protect rights of disabled americans who travel abroad, the senate would do better to encourage other nations to model their own reforms, their own internal legal structures after the americans with disabilities act, which 20 years after its passage still send a message that disabled americans will always have fair access to housing, employment and education in this nation. i've mentioned a few things to treaty does not do. i like to few things to treaty does do that cause me some concern. article xxxiv establishes a committee with the rights of persons with disabilities. this committee will establish its own rules of procedure and parties to the treaty are required to submit reports every four years. in general, u.n. human rights treaty committees have made demands the state parties that fall well outside of the legal, social, economic and cultural traditions and norms of state parties. someti
. typically any ballistic missile parts would fly through china to the north. china is north korea's only friend. there have been reports of voice of america this week that iranian team was seen in north korea, in recent days. there are questions tonight as to whether the iranians helped or benefited from this north korean ballistic missile launch. >> shepard: jennifer griffin, thanks. from the pentagon. just released fox news poll finds most americans think the government is broken. but some fresh hope tonight that our leaders can get things together in time to keep us from going over the fiscal cliff. we'll show you what is driving the optimism. there is quite a bit of it. plus, possible break in case of the manhattan murder. days after somebody carried out apparent execution on the sidewalk. police found a very important clue miles from the scene. it could help them track down the killer. they need some help. so we'll show you with the help of journalists on fox news with this wednesday "fox report." our new maine stays! 15entrees under $15, seafood, chicken and more! oothe tilapiawith
to pyongyang. press articles hail the fact that china in anticipation of the recent launch had begun inspecting cargo on north korean ships in search of contraband. the question this raises is why has chi gnat not been inspecting north korean ships since 2006 as called for in a u.n. resolution, reinforced by another resolution in 2009. if u.n. member states would only enforce the sanctions currently on the books, north korea would be unable to ignore the swer national community and the civilized world. the time for coordinated international action is now. the time, in fact, is long overdue. with that, mr. speakering i reserve the balance of our time. the speaker pro tempore: the squom from florida reserves. the gentleman from california, mr. berman is recognized. mr. berman: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in strong support of h.con.res. 145 as amended and yield myself such time as i may consume. sproy the gentleman is recognized. mr. berman: i would like to thank the sponsor of this legislation, ms. ros-lehtinen, for her leadership on this issue and her work in addressing the north korean threa
and china the biggest polluters, china is building more coal plants. how do we get them to see this issue the way we do. there is a legitimate point being made by the other side. we don't matter if the chinese continue to spew co2 in the atmosphere. how do you confront that issue. >> as you know, the chinese and other developing countries say hey, you're the rich countries you got rich polluting and you're not even willing to reduce your own emissions. now you want to stop us from doing this, and you won't help us with clean energy technologies. the answer is we need leadership. if the united states could meet its commitment that obama made, then we could go at international negotiations, and develop an agreement. i think the chinese understand that ultimately building all these coal plants is going to hurt them more than us because they've got more people. they've got a lot of people along the coast lines. they have a lot of people living in very dry arid conditions that will just get drier. they have a lot of mouths to feed and they're drawing down their aquifers. i think if the u.s. w
over internet use and content. the changes were supported by 89 countries including russia, china, and saudi arabia. >> coming up, as egypt prepares to vote, why is the new constitution so divisive? we will talk about that. >> the fate of children in afghanistan as nato troops prepare to withdraw. >> stay with us. >> welcome back, everyone. each faces a tense weekend. voting begins on a controversial constitution supported by president mohamed morsi. it has deeply divided the country. >> opposition groups are urging supporters to vote against it. morsi oppose the muslim brotherhood is calling on egyptians to support the document. -- morsi's muslim brotherhood is calling the egyptians to support the document. >> opponents said the document does not do enough to protect women and minorities. the leading activist has asked egypt's president to delay the referendum. >> it is shaping up to be a pivotal moment for the country which has witnessed daily violence in the run-up to the referendum. >> we want to get a closer look at some of the most disputed articles of the new constitution.
. the next five years will be telling for the ruling party. >> more than 1000 people in china have signed a business -- a petition where people -- it is part of an effort to tackle corruption in the government. while less as if elected -- there is a growing debate in israel over the use of pesticides in some of the country's favorite foods. a survey has found high levels of residue in more than 100 types of produce. james ferguson has the story from jerusalem. >> -- james ferguson has the story from jerusalem. >> israelis in fresh and local but how healthy are these foods? in recent government study has called hadi has caused some alarm. >> there are people that tackle these issues seriously and start to grow something which -- it should hand -- it should not happen to a thing like this. >> the study of pesticide residues in 56 of -- 56 percent of the foods, there are higher levels than permitted. there is possible exposure to pesticide use in farmington abutting quantities within the range of risk. others say the longer-term effects are potentially harmful. >> there have been studies in
working actively in china to buy european- american-chinese goods. the government is not completed, but they're not doing enough. we're thinking that pressure needs to be brought on china. goods made in germany, sold by that company to the chinese company that thinks it will keep it in china, but in fact it is going to iran. all it a country of tr concern. we're thinking maybe it is time that china is called out on that. china needs to be pressured to stop a local in the system internationally that is being created to keep iran from outfitting its centrifuge program. that effort over time has had tremendous success. with more and more sanctions, it is been more successful. more purchases stopped, more interdiction's, more trouble for iran to make progress. >> in terms of u.s. non- proliferation programs, david is emphasizing some of the holes that exist, particularly in controls and lack of enforcement of existing sanctions legislation. what is your assessment of non- proliferation programs? >> when you hear discussions on sanctions, these are the things we tried to do to cut off s
and more is expected in the next several years. >> a house in china that stood as a symbol of resistance has been turned down. it sat in the middle of a road. the neighborhood around it was destroyed but the owners refused to sale so the government built the road around the home. in the end the owners agreed to take $41,000 in compensation and the home was torn down. >> it has been a wet week here in the bay area but what about the sierra in how much snow is expected to fall by the end of the weekend. >> and a ramp on the run from police. more of this video and tell you how it all finally ended. . >> a bit of a lull in the wet weather coming our way for today with the next powerful punch already on the way as well. . >>> quite the unusual police pursuit stalled traffic in iowa yesterday. a ram jumped from a trailer started running. officers tried catching with their cars but it didn't work president the ram then ran for about an hour before a crowd was able to corner it and tackle it. the homeowner was cited for having an animal at large. >> poor guy. it is going to be a snowy weeken
in essence would serve as sanctions on iran but the point is that china needs to be pressured to stop the loophole in the system internationally that is being created to keep iran from the centrifuge program, and that effort overtime has had tremendous success, and with more and more sanctions it has been more successful. more purchase is stopped, more interdictions and more trouble for iran to make progress on the gas centrifuge program. >> in terms of the nonproliferation program, and david is emphasizing some of the holes that exist particularly in the export controls and the lack of enforcement of existing sanctions legislation what is your assessment of the u.s. nonproliferation program or what can be done and should be done? >> when you hear the sanctions, those are all the things we try to do. and so, there are four things that can be done to force things to have better training in the region if you will, but we also need to look at the demand side as well. what drives the countries to proliferate and then how do you also built in that notion of a non-proliferation, how do you
expensive to do business in countries like china. our workers have become even more productive. our energy costs are starting to go down here in the united states. and we still have the largest market. so when you factor in everything, it makes sense to invest here, in america. and that's one of the reasons why american manufacturing is growing at the fastest pace since the 1990s. and thanks in part to that boost in manufacturing, four years after the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes, our economy is growing again. our businesses have created more than 5.5 million new jobs over the past 33 months. so we're making progress. [applause] we're moving in the right direction. we're going forward. so what we need to do is simple. we need to keep going. we need to keep going forward. we should do everything we can to keep creating good middle- class jobs that help folks rebuild security for their families. [applause] and we should do everything we can to encourage companies like daimler to keep investing in american workers. and by the way, what we shouldn't do -- i just got to say this -- wh
. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and told them in china. >> the ad was referring to the auto bailout that lent a line to chrysler and gm and saved america's car industry from imminent collapse. i was in ohio when the ad came out, riding the cnn election express. ohio was crucial to romney and he had to take the state if he wanted to win, but ohio is auto country. i met voters in columbus who were outraged because it was a bold-faced lie. all chrysler said is it may make extra jeeps in china. here's what i said about romney's surprising misunderstanding of the auto industry back then. >> for decades and decades and decades, american auto companies have made cars in the countries or the regions in which they sell them. i want to remind americans when they buy toyotas and hondas and hyundais and nissans in america that are assembled here, back home somebody said why are you shipping our jobs to america? it shows a misunderstanding by the romney camp to try and get under people's nails about jobs and cars being made elsewhere. >> christine didn't see that coming and got stuck lis
more cooperatively to counter china. so certainly senator kerry, if he becomes the next secretary of state have a full plate. >> what was he like in terms of his personality? i covered him in 2004 when he was running for president in george w. bush and he was not really able to relate or identify to everyday folks, but he has quite a reputation overseas and abroad. overseas and abroad he has a reputation for knowing issue and he has relationships with a lot of world leaders and it was senator john kerry who convinced afghan president hamid karzai to go for a runoff election when the presidential elections were in question and i think he's going to be able to relate to leaders suft as secretary clinton did as a politician when these leaders are having problems compromising to say, listen, i'm in your seat. i know where you've been and run for office before and i think that will serve him well. here in washington, he is seen as someone who is very confident and on top of his brief and also someone who likes to control issues, and such as the middle east. he's someone who drills down
americans with with disabilities. when they go to saudi arabia, when they go to china, india, when they go around the world, this is saying the other places dignity and respect and access matter for people. and the terms of equality that exist in law, should apply to those with disabilities. i can't believe that would be controversial and you would have essentially only 61 senators in the united states senate vote yes on this. >> the republicans, i'm not going to go into rick santorum's black helicopter conspiracy theory on this because i don't want to dignify it with verbiage, but i recognize the republicans have crazy conspiracy theories about the u.n. the thing that strikes me about this one in particular is that you had bob dole and john mccain and all these republicans. >> none of them can be republicans today. they are talking about chuck hagel. possibly getting a position in the administration. what is bob dole? what is john mccain? are they rhinos? that's what it means is that the republican party has moved so far away from their standard bearers. i think it was one of the saddest
is the economic power house already now and in the future. you have china militarizing in that region, north korea and so much commerce, money, and trade that everyone depends on now in asia. to have the militarization of the region by two such uncertain countries with uncertain tensions it is a chilling affect on the world economy. first the u.s., the national security concern about what north korea mooib might do. the deeper, broader, long-term concern about economics and trade in the region, but for them to achieve this kind of success with a long-range missile launch, that means combined with their nuclear program, by the way, of course means the concern now full tilt that they have the capability for an intercontinental ballistic missile launch, potentially in the future with a nuclear warhead and that could put hawaii, alaska and the west coast of the united states one day at risk. >> victor cha, when the government says at no time was the missile or the debris a threat to america. is it a matter of time before kim jong-un is a threat to america. >> it is only a matter of time and the time i
standard of living. a list of such changes is long, but its start in asia with the rise of china and india -- but it starts in asia with the rise of china and india. at the center of this pivot is china, which exits as an adversary and a fellow traveler, ensuring mutual goals -- in sharing mutual goals -- as a fellow traveler, sharing mutual goals. this will impact american relations with the rest of asia and may even help determine prospects for peace or war. in visiting thailand and the philippines in october, i was reminded of the economic vitality of southeast asia and the fact that that tend countries comprise an asean represent now the fourth largest export market of the united states. these countries are center stage. we must stand firm with our friends throughout asia and actively pursue prospects for free trade and open sea lanes and other policies that will strengthen american economic growth. more broadly, we face the specter of global resource constraints, especially efficiencies of energy and food that could stimulate conflict and deepen poverty. we have made startling gains i
of lives, syria's only friends in the world have been naturally iran and china but also their best friends, russia. russia. and that was true until today. russia today did not formally declare that they're no longer going to support the syrian government against the rebels, but for the first time a high-ranking russian official said publicly that yeah, it looks like assad is going to lose this war. i mean, the united states has been saying that forever. nato has been saying that forever. everybody who wants assad to go has been saying that forever. you try to create an air of inevitability about the thing you want to happen. right? that makes sense. but now for the other side to be saying it, for syria's best friend to be saying yeah, syria, you're going to lose this, it's going to happen, that is a huge, huge deal. it is sometimes hard to follow the day-to-day news out of this war, to know what is an important day and what is just another awful day. but this is a really important moment. because syria was sort of down to their last friend in the world. and if they are now down to not even
was union and we were making $16 an hour. it went overseas. the company would prefer to go to china and a somebody $2 a day or whatever. these right-to-work states are full of temporary jobs agencies with contracts. the stamp services -- these temporary services are making money and paying people a fraction. we need to let politicians go to a temporary service and give them half of what they are making and make them see how we feel. people working for small amounts of money at temp services. ynette.ow to panetta, conwalive caller: they call it a right-to- work states, but i guess the language got changed, because it used to be a free will state. the employers without unions had the right to fire you for anything, any reason or no reason at all, and you had no recourse. so i still believe in unions and i still believe the people should have a right to join or not. host: this tweet -- are you with us? caller: i am. host: higher wages of less jobs in the state's. caller: yes, but most of the jobs in this area, in the myrtle beach area, those are minimum- wage jobs, where i live. if we
with russia and china. we have been working a great deal with the syrian opposition. and so, you're topic about the dissident dictators i think is quite timely at least for those of us that are working on syrian issues. the syrian opposition started out as a very peaceful movement. it basically started out with syrians demanding what i would say is respect for very basic rights and their dignity. the very first demonstration in syria was in a market. it basically started because a policeman build the double murders to didn't understand a contradictory caught in the tragic command from the policemen who didn't coordinate among themselves. they got pulled out of the car and beat up. people fought and gathered, and this was on february 17th, 2011. they said the syrian people will not be humiliated. it's about dignity. fundamentally, it is an issue about dignity. peaceful protests and the government, bashar assad's government responded with terrible force, and we have seen now what's happened, 40,000 dead, and the number is growing. so, when this peaceful protest movement confronted harvick v
, china and india in particular are actually the source of most of the increasing greenhouse fasts that we've seen in recent years and the united states is at a level of greenhouse gas emissions it hasn't been at in over a decade. so, partially due to our own repressed economy, but partialingly due to the fact that you're talking about regulations and alternative fuels, the u.s. economy and other industriallized economies have actually seen their emissions stabilize or even fall over the past decade. >> yeah, and china, they're a big polluter. i mean, if you go into a store and you break something, you pay for it. so, if we can prove that a country is a big polluter, why shouldn't they pay? >> the problem is that even if the united states, all the other stilllized countries complied with what the secretary-general was talking about, it actually wouldn't do anything in terms of greenhouse gas emissions because the growth in the greenhouse gas emissions is coming with the developing world and it would be almost symbolic gesture in terms of global warming which is their theory and do nothing
tougher sanctions on north korea but without support from china, options could be limited. this is video from overnight of the celebrations in north korea after the successful rocket launch. many countries believe it is north korea's way of testing its long-range ballistic missile technology. of course, the united states is very concerned about north korea's weapons capabilities this year. robert gates said north korea was within five years of being able to strike the continental united states. the white house condemns the missil launch calling it a highly provocative act that could impact stability in the region. alison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> pope benedict really 16 is now part of the -- pope benedict is now part of the twitter nation. he already has more than 1 million followers who will read miss messages in english, arabic, polish and four other languages. >>> 8:16. pavi shankar has died at the age of 92. boy. he was good. he was known as the good father the world music. in fact -- known as the godfather of world music. in fact, the beatles gave him that name. he continued t
